9 weeks to go...

Can't believe I just have 2 months to go... I'm so excited!

The baby's starting to move around a lot now and it's so nice to feel her move even though it's uncomfortable at times. She seems to be more active in the morning and in the evening and sometimes around lunch time.

My heartburn's gone up a lot and it's getting uncomfortable to move around these days.

My husband and I are still considering names for the baby. Somehow, I think the baby's name is going to be decided very close to when she's born or after she's born.

We assembled the Storkcraft Glider and Ottoman that I ordered on Amazon - so far, I'm liking it. It creaks a little once in a while but hasn't bothered me so far. I guess I'll know more about how much I like it after the baby's born.

I ordered the Babyletto Modo 3-in-1 Crib in Expresso - I received it a few days ago but have yet to assemble it.

28 week update

I had my 28th week appointment with my OB-GYN yesterday. Everything's normal, according to her - I've put on the correct amount of weight, my uterus is at the right fundal height - my stomach looks about the right size. So far, so good. I'm happy that everything's going ok so far.

I asked her about the pelvic pain I've been having - she said that's pretty normal because the baby is putting more weight and that's putting pressure down on my pelvic floor. She suggested a pregnancy harness - I've to go buy one and check it out.

I also asked her about the abdominal pain on my lower left side - she said that's probably a bruise on my uterus from the baby kicking or moving repeatedly. She said there's nothing really to do about it and it will go away on its own.

Overall, a good visit. My next visit is a month away and I will be doing a growth ultrasound then. While that's normal, I have a feeling she wants to make sure the baby is in the correct position since I think the baby is in breech position right now. At the beginning of the pregnancy, when I had asked her how many ultrasounds she will be doing, she said only one - the 20th week one. But now, she's suggesting a 32 week one. So we'll see how that goes.

I'm excited to see the baby again and hope she's doing well.

In other news, the baby's kicking and moving most days now. It feels strange some times but I'm happy to feel her move. I felt her hiccup for the first time last night. It didn't bother me and I've been told it doesn't bother her either, I was excited to feel that.

I ordered the glider/ottoman for the nursery yesterday on amazon. Below is the one I ordered. It was on sale for $129, which I felt was a pretty good deal.
